With disappointing reports that Arsene Wenger has snubbed the chance to re-sign Cesc Fabregas, it’s open season in terms of securing his signature and Chelsea look favourites to sign him.
It makes sense – his family are in London, he likes the capital and apparently Manchester United have cooled their interest after Louis Van Gaal took over at Old Trafford.
And if Arsene has lost the plot and can’t see the advantages to signing our former captain, then Cesc should join Chelsea. Chelsea have the financial power to give him excellent wages, he’d be working with Jose Mourinho who is a born winner (although we joke that he’s the specialist in failure, you can’t knock his outstanding record) and the bottom line is Chelsea will be right in there when it comes for challenging for the major honours next season.
With a decent striker they managed to reach the Champions League semi-finals and were right in the title race for the Premier League with 2/3 games to go. Yes, they finished the season empty handed but with a squad with obvious limitations, Jose Mourinho did an excellent job.
At Manchester City, they have the midfield partnership of Fernandinho and Yaya Toure which is formidable, while Frank Lampard has just left Chelsea and it makes sense signing Cesc to be his long term replacement. They also sold David Luiz for £50 million so they definitely have the available funds. Cesc is a proven talent in the Premier League and would be a massive asset to Chelsea – and I’m sure Jose Mourinho would love to sign Cesc and have him comeback to haunt Arsenal in some way.
If Arsenal are stupid enough to let this chance pass them by then Cesc has every right to look for the best option for himself and his family. And if he wants to return to England, then they option is Chelsea Football Club.
